The Curvy Fashionista Loves Our Wide Calf Socks

The Curvy Fashionista is your plus size fashion resource and destination & Marie, Editor in Chic, loves a good pair of socks!!

In this video: Accessorize to Maximize: Summer Beauty and Style Finds That You’ll Love, she calls our socks “hella stretchy”—

“Get this girl, up to a 21″ calf! Do you hear me? A 21″ calf circumference. So here you have form, fit, fashion, and function… Girl, get into it!”

Knee high wide calf socks might seem a strange fit for summer, but she makes a really good point: “They’re the perfect socks to wear around the house when you wanna wear knee highs and your little booty shorts because it’s 5000º outside but your AC is still going strong inside.”

Watch her whole video because it’s fun, informative, and there are some other good products in there too!

Some Wide Calf Sock Love

“Sock It to Me not only carries wide calf socks that go up to approximately 21″ widths, but they also have stretch-it technology that allows the socks to stretch without losing the design! This is a big deal for plus size women!” writes the Mighty Murphin Fashion Ranger.

She says, “You can wear them lounging around the house in pajamas or jazz up an outfit with them when you’re feeling playful!”

“…when it comes to socks and shoes, plus size women have a lot less options due to our wide calves,” says The Might Murphin Fashion Ranger.

In 2015 we created a new sock machine to fix that issue. It knits with a higher thread count so the socks stretch more without loosing the intended pattern. Since then, our STRETCH-IT™ collection has just kept growing.

Get to Know: Fall STRETCH-ITs!

STRETCH-IT Roundup—S0050, S0051, S0053

We have three new STRETCH-IT™ styles this fall: STRETCH-IT™ Gato Libre, STRETCH-IT™ Fox Trot, & STRETCH-IT™ Shark Attack. We gathered them all up for a special interview about their role in the line, how they relax, and what they think the future holds.


SITM: What does being a STRETCH-IT™ mean to you?

Fox: Fox Trot here! I’m just so honored to have been chosen! I know there’s only one machine making these extra stretchy socks and not very many styles make it each year, so it is just so great to be one of them!

SITM: What is your life philosophy?

Shark: Challenge what you think is true. We’re stretchier than what most thought was possible. I’m here to tell you that humans shouldn’t be scared of sharks, but you should maybe be scared of my friend, Gato.

SITM: Why do you think people are crazy for STRETCH-IT™ socks?

Shark: I think people like how inclusive we are. We’re socks that stretch to fit wide-calf and larger feet folks, while still staying up for smaller ones too. We’re unisex socks. And just look at the diversity of our designs: sharks, frolicking foxes, and lucha libre cats!

SITM: What’s your superpower?

Shark: We can all stretch up to 21 inches circumference without warping our designs.

Gato: That and I can do a mean guillotina! MROW!

SITM: What do you do to relax?

Gato: Stretches. Haha! I do them before and after every match.

SITM: What do you want to see for the future of STRETCH-IT?

Fox: I’d love to see a unique STRETCH-IT™ design. That is, one that isn’t on any other type of sock: women’s knee high, crew sock.

Shark: I’ve heard rumors…

Fox: Me too.

Gato: What an exciting time to be alive! MEOOOOW!


The new STRETCH-IT’s have spoken. You can buy STRETCH-IT™ Gato Libre, STRETCH-IT™ Fox Trot, & STRETCH-IT™ Shark Attack knee highs if you think you can keep up with them.
